The End of NetizenBuzz?: Nate to Shut Down Entertaiment Comments section For Good👏



The Korean web portal Nate will now also be removing the comment feature on its entertainment articles, following portals Daum and Naver.



The Korean web portal Nate will now also be removing the comment feature on its entertainment articles, following portals Daum and Naver.

On June 30, Nate announced, “Users have expressed their concerns over the negative use of comments on entertainment news articles, which are contrary to the intended positive use which is showing support for television programs or celebrities. Taking these opinions into consideration, Nate News will close the comment service on entertainment news articles starting on July 7.”

While the comment feature will continue on other types of news articles, users’ comment histories will now be made viewable by everyone. Previously, users could decide whether or not they wanted their “My Comments” page to be public.

Other major portal sites Daum and Naver have already suspended the comment function on their entertainment articles following growing concerns about the harmful effects of malicious comments. Kakao’s Daum tentatively disabled the comment feature last October and both Daum and the messaging app Kakao Talk removed related searches for people. Daum also took down the display of realtime trending searches on its site.

In March, Naver tentatively suspended comments on its entertainment news articles and disabled related search terms for names, and it later revamped its reaction emojis to remove the “angry” reaction on entertainment articles.


The end of an (heatred) era indeed! Nate was pretty much the last news portal giving material to socalled "translations blogs"
